Acer Stream Preview

by: James TromansOctober 4, 2010

Acer S110 Stream

I will soon be posting my review of the Acer S110 Stream but in the mean time I thought I would comment on my initial reactions to the device and post a few images. The Stream is Acer’s attempt to create a top-of-the-range smartphone capable of cutting with the likes of the Galaxy S and iPhone. For the most part, the phone lives up to the task when we consider its specifications on paper: HSDPA/HSUPA/EDGE/GPRS, Qualcomm QSD 8250 1Ghz processor, 512MB ROM & RAM, 3.7-inch WVGA AMOLED display, 5.0-megapixel camera, Wi-Fi b/g/n and expandable microSD card-slot.

Indeed, the Stream is a great phone and feels like one in the [...]

Acer Stream to run Android 2.1

by: James TromansJuly 26, 2010

Acer Stream

Acer have just announced their latest high-end Android multimedia smartphone. This is certainly one to watch and is clearly aimed towards the Samsung Galaxy S and Nexus One market. Indeed, the Stream will offer an AMOLED 3.7” WVGA display with 3G+ HSDPA 7.2 Mbps download connectivity. Naturally, the device offers Bluetooth but we are also pleasantly surprised to see WiFi n included too.

In terms of the core processing unit, the Acer Stream packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 1GHz processor, with its  512 MB RAM. By their own admission, this is Acer’s fastest handset to date. The 5MP camera can also record at 720p HD video and this [...]

Acer beTouch E110 review

by: James TromansJuly 22, 2010

Acer beTouch E110

The beTouch E110 from Acer is by its own admission, “Smart ‘n Simple”. We took this entry level device for a spin and were pleasantly surprised by its build quality and overall functionality. However, despite jumping through the hoops and then some for what the consumer expects of an entry-level device, the beTouch E110 reminded us of phones 12 months older that do much the same thing, for the same price. Nonetheless, the device worked… well. It is very simple to use and you get more than what you might expect for your money. Read on to find out more.

Acer adds two new Android smartphones: beTouch E120 and beTouch E130

by: James TromansJune 15, 2010


Acer have just officially announced the launch of the new beTouch E120 and the E130 Android based smartphones. The E120 will be available form mid-July while the E130 will land in August. The devices share some common features but their form factor is quite different; the E130 has a QWERTY keyboard.

In terms of the specifications that they share, both devices will offer 3G+, high speed browing and download (HSDPA), WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS pre-installed. Furthermore, they offer a basic 3.2 megapixel digital camera, for “quick and easy shooting of unexpected moments”, along with a Radio FM. The upside is both devices will pack a 1500 [...]

Acer release the new Acer Aspire One D260

by: James TromansJune 9, 2010

Aspire One D260

The Acer Aspire One D260 is a Windows 7 netbook with a difference, it can come with Android. Ok, so it is not that different, but booting up via Android in 15 seconds is always worth a shout out. In general, this device is pretty sound. The keyboard is a highly responsive 93% standard-size keyboard and the battery will last 8 hours. Available in a host of colors (Black Flake, Purple Flake, Pink Flake and Charcoal Flake), we think that this device is surely set to appeal to a wide range of consumers.

Getting into the technical specifications, the display itself is LED backlit and comes with an Acer CrystalEye webcam. In terms of [...]

Acer Liquid E Ferrari to run Android 2.1?

by: James TromansJune 1, 2010

Acer Liquid E Ferrari

Acer are set to release an updated version of their Liquid handset, endorsed by Ferrari. Although the press release we received only goes so far in covering the technical specifications of this device, we believe that the Liquid E Ferrari will come with Android 2.1 and a 3.5-inch touchscreen. It will run off a Qualcomm Snapdragon chip and packs a 5-megapixel camera with autofocus and geotagging features.

Acer Liquid E Ferrari special edition is the most exclusive smartphone in the world, dedicated to those who refuse to settle for mere perfection and demand something extra from their technological devices: passion, [...]

Video: Acer Liquid Stream gets Official

by: James TromansMay 28, 2010

After all the leakages we faced earlier in the week, Acer have officially unveiled the Acer Stream. As far as I am aware, this will be the companies first smartphone offering running Android 2.1 Eclair. Things have come a long way for Acer and the smartphone since this time last year.

Indeed, as we suspected, the Stream will run on a 1Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and 512MB of RAM. In terms of on-board storage, the Stream will pack a healthy 2GB but is expandable via the microSD card slot (presumably up to 32GB). The camera takes shots up to 5MP and will offer 720p HD video recording. In the modern day higher-end smartphones, 720p HD video recording usually means a HDMI [...]

Acer CEO reveals 7-inch Android tablet for Q4 2010

by: James TromansMay 27, 2010

Acer 7-inch Android Tablet

Tech lifestyle blog shufflegazine have taken few snap shots at a recent press event held by Acer over in Beijing. As far as we are concerned, the highlight of the event has to be the unveiling of the company’s 7-inch Android tablet. This is especially sweet given that not so long ago Acer denied ever wanting to get involved in the tablet market, let along with Android at the helm.

Lanci, the Acer CEO, failed to let-loose any juicy specifications for us to get our claws into, however, he did hint at a fourth quarter launch. We’ll believe it when we see it. The only other thing that Shufflegazine are [...]

Acer ‘Liquid Stream’ S110 with 720p video recording

by: James TromansMay 26, 2010

Acer S110 Liquid Stream

The Acer Liquid Stream comes courtesy of Phandroid, who spotted the device at Google I/O the other day. Well, Acer certainly look as though they are upping their game as the device has recently received FCC approval.

To start, the device is alleged to offer Android 2.1 which is rumored to evolve into 2.2 either by release or soon after. The core processor is a tastey Snapdragon and helps record 720p video via the 5 megapixel camera. There are whispers that this device could land in Europe this October, and because of the radio 850 / 1900MHz HSPA its quite possible that this puppy will crop up in the USA pretty soon too.
